  • San Diego Water Taxi
    Flagship Cruises and Events hosts more than harbor tours. On a given evening, a party floats out onto San Diego Bay. The stars overhead combine with the skyline's twinkling lights to become a giant disco ball, which sets the mood for dance after dance aboard one of Flagship Cruises and Events'?signature vessels. These nighttime dinner cruises send gourmet chefs, DJs, and ample bottles of champagne out on 25-mile voyages up and down San Diego's waters. Yet this is only one of the events Flagship's team has dreamed up since they chartered their first cruise back in 1915, the year water was discovered not to be poisonous. You'll also find their boats basking in the glow of fireworks on New Year's Eve and the Fourth of July, as well as carrying sprawling brunch buffets during weekends. Additionally, Flagship's captains charter private cruises and lead sightseeing trips. These include thrilling Patriot speed boat rides and more leisurely harbor tours, which float past area attractions such as the city shipyards, U.S. Navy ships, and the Coronado Bay Bridge. From December?April, some 20,000 gray whales swim through the area and give passengers even more to look at.

  • Resort Watersports
    Cypress trees sway in the breeze, lush tropical vegetation soaks up the sunshine, and white sandy beaches glisten nearby as Watersports at Little Harbor's rental jet skis, paddleboards, kayaks, canoes, and pontoons tote adventurers across the waters of Tampa Bay. The Key West?style resort allows families and friends to glimpse local wildlife as they skim scenic shorelines and chase picturesque settings at an aquatic reservoir as vast and secluded as Bigfoot's bathtub. The resort's alighted tiki torches and palm trees that border its tiki bar and pavilion attract groups for company picnics or private events such as weddings and parties, during which revelers can partake in watersports, dance to reggae, or watch a fire-dancing show.

  • Adventure Water Sports
    From two outposts on the shores of Mission Bay, Adventure Water Sports launches vessels and seafaring classes to introduce customers to the joy of cutting through veils of spray and sunshine. Both launching points are near the bay's full-speed zone, so captains hoping to tote skiers behindpowerboats or do donuts on a scuba diver?s lawn in waverunners don't waste valuable time idling through the no-wake zone. Kayaks, pedal boats, and paddleboards cut across the steel-blue mirror of the no-wake zone, an ideal stretch for learning and exploring. Instructors from Adventure Water Sports impart nautical wisdom to youngsters in summer youth classes that focus on anything from waterskiing and wakeboarding to riding aqua cycles. The waterfront retailers also rent out single and tandem terrestrial bicycles for those looking to cruise the Mission Beach boardwalk or simply explain the motorcycle noises they are making with their mouths.

  • Next Level Sailing
    With San Diego being one of the world’s sailing capitals, any visitor or local alike should get out onto the water and enjoy the city’s aquatic playground. Next Level Sailing has three gorgeous yachts – Abracadabra, America and Stars & Stripes – that each offer two to three hour excursions around the bay and open ocean. During these hands-on sails, passengers act as part of the team and get to steer the yachts, grind the winches and learn about the entire boating process. The 139-foot America ship takes groups whale watching off the coast from December to April, as pods of gray whales travel from Alaska to Baja. A few months later, 100-foot blue whales appear off the coast, making one of Next Level Sailing’s former America’s Cup vessels the perfect place to catch an up-close glimpse. And regardless of the season, dolphins and sea lions are always ready to make a playful appearance.
